GOP Portrayed as Confederates Hunting Down Minority Kids in Virginia Campaign Ad

Anna Giaritelli, Washington Examiner, October 30, 2017

The Latino Victory Fund released an ad Monday that portrays Republicans as racists, by showing a white supporter of the GOP’s candidate for governor in Virginia, Ed Gillespie, hunt down minority children in his pickup truck.


Last week, the Washington Post editorial board said Gillespie’s campaign was using an “incendiary and misleading TV attack ad designed to frighten Virginians.” The paper has not issued a response in light of Northam’s fear-mongering ad.
